Introduction to Skin-on-Frame Boat Building

2 Day Class

Two Session Class

Instructor: Bruce Campbell

Two Saturdays, January 26 & February 9, 2019
1:00 pm – 5:00 pm each session

Skin on Frame (SOF) is not only one of the oldest methods for building a boat, it is also one of the easiest. To build a boat, one covers a frame with fabric. The simplest SOF craft are made from plywood frames and wooden stringers. More complex designs use steamed ribs to hold stringers. This class will use a Dave Gentry design to build his Shenandoah Whitehall 14’ rowboat. http://www.gentrycustomboats.com/

During the first class we will lash the frame together from parts that have been cut out and prepared by the instructor. During the second class we will cover the frame with 16 oz. polyester fabric from George Dyson (Baidarka) and varnish it. This completes the two key tasks in making a Skin on Frame craft.
